And I'm not saying that he shouldn't do it. I enjoy a lot of Phil's bass lines; Cumberland Blues, Friend Of The Devil (a la 1970), I Know You Rider, amongst many others.

It's just that my preference overall is for a tight, verging on funky rhythm section. John Kahn does that better in my opinion. Phil struggles with 'funky'.

He (JK) might have actually been let out of the rehearsal room by Fagen and Becker, who knows ?
